L’Arche Mobile First Light Marathon Changes Its Name

MOBILE, AL – L’Arche Mobile has announced that the First Light Marathon has been renamed to The ServisFirst Bank Mobile Marathon presented by Infirmary Health. This annual race is coordinated by, and benefits, L’Arche Mobile.

The First Light Marathon began 17 years ago to provide a certified full and half marathon, to showcase the City of Mobile’s diverse neighborhoods, and to raise awareness and funds for L’Arche Mobile.

“L’Arche Mobile is excited about the name change of the marathon to the ServisFirst Bank Mobile Marathon presented by Infirmary Health. We have appreciated the support of our sponsors, all the volunteers who have made this a successful event and the potential future growth of this event which will benefit L’Arche Mobile,” Emily Callaway, L’Arche Mobile, President of The Board of Directors.

“Infirmary Health has sponsored the First Light Marathon and supported the L’Arche community for several years,” said Mark Nix, Infirmary Health President, and CEO. “We are especially proud to be the presenting sponsor of the new ServisFirst Bank Mobile Marathon benefiting L’Arche Mobile. L’Arche fills a much-needed service to the community, one we hope continues to grow and expand with support from other organizations and community members of the Mobile Marathon.”

“The First Light Marathon has become a landmark event for Mobile benefitting an incredible organization, L’Arche Mobile. Rechristening this race as the ServisFirst Bank Mobile Marathon presented by Infirmary Health further establishes our city as a destination.
